    If you set this preference in Outlook on the Web, then Outlook for Mac will respect it! Please ensure you are on the Feb release of Outlook for Mac (16.46.212.0)

    We also respect the setting to start meetings late.

    The ability to set this inside of Outlook for Mac will come soon.

  3. Public folders Tool and view needs to come back

    Literally can't even use the new Outlook now since we rely on this

  4. I suggest you don't include sent messages when you group conversations

    Including every sent mail in a grouped conversation in your mailbox makes the thread very long, and I don't necessarily want to see the messages I've sent. Plus, they're always available to me in the Sent folder. Please go back to grouping only the new items in a conversation sent by others and excluding those sent by the user. Thank you!

  5. Allow to always download images from approved Contacts

    Old Outlook had an option to always load images for Contacts. This function has disappeared and adds extra frustration for known-good senders / mailing lists.

    There is no feature to support Groups or contact lists in new Outlook for macOS. When you switch from old to new, the Lists are not visible and neither can one create new lists

  7. Find contacts across multiple accounts when creating a new message

    When I create a new email message and begin typing the name of a contact, Outlook should find contacts from all of my mail accounts. This worked in Old Outlook, but in New Outlook it only searches contacts in the current account.

  10. I suggest you add a button to create a task from an email

    I suggest you add a button to create a task from an email body that is highlighted. When a text is highlighted you should be able to create a task quickly from there with being able to link back to the original email as a reference.Inviting people to a task would be a nice touch as well.

  11. Let users hide the search bar

    It would be nice to be able to hide the search bar at the top. It wastes a lot of space on the screen, and I don't use it all that frequently. A show/hide option would be great, and a keybind to search something when it is hidden would be even better!

  13. Setting to Always show time and date

    Instead of saying "Yesterday" it would say the date and time in the reading pane: i.e. 10/01/2020 11:41PM. This is useful if you are getting Nagios alerts from your monitoring system so you know what time an outage happened.

  14. html email signature

    Please add an option to use HTML. I know how to make text and images "link" to a website, but I want to add images, from HTML references in my email signature so I can use logos from a website and not be forced to attach the image to an email.

  15. I suggest you give an option to choose if replying a message pops out as a separate window or stays within the reading pane

    I suggest you give an option to choose if replying a message pops out as a separate window or stays within the reading pane.

    Its a convenience for some people. Also I encountered an issue where I was trying to forward an email and then attach another email to it. To do so I choose to "Continue message in a separate window", and then located the other mail to attach, dragged and attached. Everything was normal till here, but when I started typing in the email body, the window suddenly popped-back-in to the reading pane area. This happened to me…

  16. I suggest you catchup with Windows as regards sharing OneDrive attachements

    Contrary to Outlook for Windows, I can only include raw links to OneDrive documents, inline my text, with unfriendly URLs. I would prefer Outlook for Mac to make the attachment look like a normal attachement like it does for Windows, as well as automatically add permission to recipients

  18. Enable adjusting meetings by 15 minutes by dragging

    You can change meeting length by dragging the outside of the event in calendar. You should be able to adjust in 15 minute intervals. Instead I have to type in the 15 minute offset. Once it is on a 15 minute interval (3:15 or 3:45) you seem to be able to do more but it reverts back if you hit a 30 minute interval

  19. Give us the ability to subscribe to other internet based calendars

    Please give us the ability to subscribe to any url based calendar feeds. I've been able to use the feature in Google Calendar and would love the ability to subscribe to my personal calendars with my work calendars in the Outlook client to have a consolidated view of my different areas of focus.

  20. Unify the email file types between Mac and PC. i.e. use .OTF on Mac instead of .EML

    Unify the email file types between Mac and PC. i.e. use .OTF on Mac instead of .EML. If I create an email template I need to use a virtual machine and run Outlook PC to create an .oft. Why can't I save a .oft on Mac?
